It’s February, so it must be time for a Pin Ups Ladies Night! This will be Ladies Night 3 and we think that it’s going to be the biggest and best one yet!
Our star live headliners are French Horn Rebellion ( http://www.frenchhornrebellion.com ). Robert and David are a shiny electropop duo from Brooklyn, New York, who came to our attention last autumn with their tremendous single “Up All Night”, which you might have heard being played all over Radio 1 and 6Music. Mixmag made it Electro Tune of the Month, Artrocker gave it 5 stars for its “sparkling synths and vocal bridges of epic scale” and to top things off Kitsune chose it for the highly prestigious opening slot on their latest Kitsuné Maison 8 Compilation. FHR are visiting Pin Ups as part of a UK tour to promote their new EP “Beaches and Friends”, out 1st March.
In support of FHR will be the sweet harmonic indiepop of Maple Leaves (fronted by Anna Miles - http://www.myspace.com/mapleleavesmusic) and a band that those in the know are calling "the best new band in Scotland" (!), Conquering Animal Sound ( fronted by Anneke Kampman - http://www.myspace.com/conqueringanimalsound ).
For Ladies Night 3 we’re also welcoming the most stellar cast of Guest DJs that Pin Up Nights has ever assembled! Tracyanne and Carey (Camera Obscura - http://www.camera-obscura.net ), Adele and Ailidh (Sons & Daughters - http://www.sonsanddaughtersloveyou.com ), Emma Pollock (The Delgados - http://www.emmapollock.com ), Emmy-Kate and Marie du Santiago (Kenickie - http://www.msypace.com/kenickieband ), Manda Rin (Bis - http://www.planetmanda.com ) and a very special “Hunky Secret Treat” (whose handsome identity we are keeping a closely guarded secret) will all be on the decks during the night to keep you on the dancefloor.
The first 100 ladies to arrive will receive a special Goody Bag, and we will also be once again be setting up a “Vintage Village” (this year with help from the Made in the Shade girls - http://www.wearemadeintheshade.com ) for stallholders selling jewellery, comics, vintage clothing, sweets and loads more.
Overseeing all the chaos and hilarity and filling in the gaps will be the Pin Ups DJs dressed in our best drag gear (joking - or are we..?) and all-lady DJ collective Bow Peep who, after entertaining the Kitchen at September’s Circus and Hogmanay, will be making their Main Room DJing debut!
As you can imagine this shindig is costing us a lot of cash to put together, but we still want to give everybody the best value we possibly can, while also giving ladies the fun and privilege of a discount on the entry fee. So we have come up with the following pricing (pay attention at the back):
1.There will be a strictly limited number of online FIVER tickets available, for ladies or gents, from the store at http://www.pinup-nights.co.uk .
2. After the strictly limited online £5 tickets are gone advance tickets will still available for both ladies and gents for £6, from both the store at http://www.pinup-nights.co.uk or Tickets Scotland. (The Hogmanay Ball was sold out by 10.30pm, so advance tickets might be necessary!)
3. Finally on the night we will charge £6 for ladies and £7 for gents.
(We hope you agree this is still amazing value for all the action involved!)
We’ll be updating the details of the night in the next few weeks so keep checking back!
Go snap up those £5 tickets!
Thanks, Pin Ups.x
